The Cubbies launches a steady offensive assault on Thursday night in defeating the Marlins in their own ballpark, 11-1.
Addison Russell homered and got four hits on the day his wife announced she is filing for divorce. Ian Happ had four hits of his own directly behind Russell in the lineup and Kris Bryant lifted his 16th home run of the season.
Jake Arrieta did his part, too. He only needed 82 pitches to get 21 outs before giving the bullpen some light work in the blowout.
John Lackey can only hope the Cubs have some run support left for him tonight. He got his ERA under 5.00 with six innings of one-run ball in his last start in Pittsburgh.
His WHIP and BAA suggest that ERA is a little high but 20 home runs in just 81.1 innings have really hurt Lackey’s earned run numbers.
Jeff Locke could only get through four innings so it was another heavy night for Miami’s bullpen, which threw 108 pitches in the final five innings.
Marcell Ozuna’s 20th home run of the season to start the second inning accounted for the Marlins’ only offensive output on the night.
Jose Urena has thrown back-to-back quality starts, six innings and three hits allowed in each. He’s walked just three batters in those two starts, combined.
If you know he’ll be in the strike zone, Urena will almost certainly be effective, a hard-thrower with some nasty bending stuff. But that isn’t always the case.
The Fish would love six innings out of their young starter, which is as deep as Urena has ever pitched into a game.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. Miami Marlins MLB Prediction: it goes over, again.
This time the scoring should be a little more balanced but I’m still leaning hard on the Cubs here. Urena probably won’t go more than five innings, which gives Chicago plenty of time to rough up the Miami bullpen.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Over 9.0 (-110)
Lackey is always good for at least two or three runs.
